Show Recap Week March 6 -12

ShowRecaps

Show Name: The Walking Dead
Time: Sunday 9pm
Channel: AMC
Episode: Not Tomorrow Yet

Thoughts: This episode was so intense. I spent the whole time just cringing, waiting for someone to die. Evidently, we are all just waiting for Glenn to meet his end. I have been trying to prepare myself for it, even though I don’t want it to happen, I can’t help but believe all the rumors.

First I will say, there was a moment where I wondered if maybe Rick’s group has become the bad guys. I mean, they are going into this place where these men are sleeping. They have done nothing to Rick’s group, unless you count the a-holes that held up Daryl, Sasha, and Abraham. Of course, Daryl took them out real fast, but I guess the guys do have that whole possibility of killing. Then, when Glenn kills his first guy and moves on to the next we see the pictures on the wall. I don’t know if those pictures were live people that this bad guy killed or if they were walkers. Either way, having those kind of pictures above your bed…comforting you as you sleep…you are definitely a bad guy.

I found it funny that so many people thought that Negan, the bad guy we have all been warned about, was the woman on the walkie. The actor who will be playing Negan has been all over the news. It was kind of an eye opener as to maybe how obsessed I am with this show.

So here is my prediction for the next episode. If you watch Talking Dead you saw the preview where one of the guys holding Maggie and Carol called Carol a bitch. I just feel like he signed his own death certificate with that comment. They don’t know how crazy Carol is and I don’t think that Rick and the other guys need to worry about the two women because Carol is about to open a can of…you get the picture

 

Show Name: Once Upon A Time
Time: Sunday, 8pm
Channel: WLOS
Episode: Souls of the Departed

Thoughts:  Okay, this was not a season premier, but more of a mid-season premier. It is episode 12 of season 5, but after the hiatus we need to discuss this and give the show its props. When we left off at the mid-season finale, Emma and all her companions were taking a trip into the underworld to find and save Killian. Of course, they have to save Killian because he became the dark one and had to be killed to save the town. And it’s all Emma’s fault. Can I blame her?

What I loved about this episode was Regina was reunited with her father. It gave her a chance to apologize for being so horrible to him. And her father is such a great character. Even though his wife and daughter have had their evil past, he never gave up on Regina. It’s so heartwarming that he was always in her corner, never believing for a second that she was the evil queen she tried to be. Regina’s mother on the other hand is just a power hungry skank that doesn’t deserve the love Regina holds for her. But it looks like Cora is in some deep trouble herself with Hades himself. I honestly cannot wait to see what happens with this story line. What is that Hades wants?

I like the direction this show is going right now. I may be a little biased though. I love any kind of twist of the classic fairytales. I think Emma and her family are in for a fight, but I sure do hope they come out with Killian in the end. But not Neal. I liked Neal, but I feel as though his story line is done and over. Sure, let him help them find Killian, but then he can move on like Regina’s father did. Please?

 

Show Name: Teen Wolf
Time: Tuesday 8pm
Channel: MTV
Episode: Apotheosis (Season Finale)

Thoughts: I may or may not have sat around for 5 hours, binge watching the last 5 episodes of this show. I have this bad habit of waiting to watch my favorite shows until I have almost the entire season to watch at one time because I am terribly impatient and can’t stand a cliff hanger. The biggest problem with Teen Wolf is that it was on a night when I usually had to work and when I close I often have to open the next day. Meaning I have no time to watch Teen Wolf the day it airs. So I just saved them all until this week when I binge watched it all.

So let me get into this. This whole entire season was pretty amazing. There was so much going on and Lydia almost died at least twice. The poor girl. But I feel like this season she really found who she was. She finally understands what it means to be a Banshee and she can use her abilities to her advantage instead of them using her. I know that Stiles and Malia currently have a thing going on, but who hasn’t been rooting for Stiles and Lydia since the beginning? I think it is finally going to happen. Stiles has finally won over Lydia, because he is the one who never gave up on her. He saved her when she thought she was done for. It has to happen!

Speaking of Malia, she finally faced her mother, the Desert Wolf, and killed her! It’s about time we no longer have to worry about that bad guy. Let’s face it, she wouldn’t have fought as hard if it wasn’t for Stiles. Stiles is the only normal human in this pack, and he seems to carry them all. He is the force that keeps pushing them to fight a little harder.

Kira has finally accepted that she needs the skin walkers to help her tame her wild side. I just wish it had been something with Scott that helped her control the Kitsune. Scott is the alpha, the one who saves the day. But a summer with the skin walkers sounds kind of fun. Or not…

Over all, I love the ending of this season. It was a fantastic season. I was starting to get a little bored with the show, but this season has brought me back to the fandom. Scott’s pack has defeated the Beast, after they realized it would take all of them to beat it. He has his pack whole and complete again, with at least one added person in the mix. Theo has been taken down to who knows where. Deucalion was actually there to help the whole time. Mason is okay. Everyone is a hero, and even Allison was able to help from beyond the grave. A perfect ending to a great season. My favorite part is that no one died!

And then at the end, they leave us wondering what is going to happen, because you know these teens can never get much of a break.

My question though, how many more seasons will we get of Teen Wolf? They are all talking about going to college, and soon, our Teen Wolf will no longer be a teen. What happens then? Should we be preparing ourselves for this show to come to an end, or will it follow Scott into his young adulthood until the show no longer catches the public interest anymore?

Show Recaps: Week 2/21 – 2/27

ShowRecaps

Okay folks. I have decided how I am actually going to do this. I will not have a set amount of TV shows I will cover each week. There will be at least one. For the most part, it will be just the shows that really hit me and made me fume with comments. Yes, I take notes while I am watching these shows. I have Word on my phone and keep it open while watching the shows. I was using a notebook, but it was just uncomfortable. I also type on my phone way faster than I write. Odd?

Moving on. This week I didn’t figure out how I was going to do this until half way through the week, so…I only have 3 shows for you today. And only one with a lot to say.

The Walking Dead
Time: Sunday 9pm
Channel: AMC
Episode: The Next World

Thoughts: Loved this episode so much! The bro relationship between Rick and Daryl. The hook up between Rick and Michonne (FINALLY!). And Jesus…who is dreamy and I am hoping that he is a good guy. According to an article I read, in the comics he is a good guy. But we will see.

And we see the true heart of Carl, leading Zombie Deanna to Spencer. He knew it had to be someone that loved her to take her out. And I am sure it gave Spence a little peace knowing his mother was no longer wondering around the world as a zombie.

Now, let me go into this whole Rick and Michonne deal. I saw it coming, I really did. I have been rooting for this since they left the prison. You have two people who were built to survive the apocalypse, they can have a little romance and keep their heads on straight. Meaning, they will make it, they are in it for the long haul. Not to mention that Carl basically told Michonne she was family and he loved her as so. Also, have you seen how much Michonne loves Carl and Judith? It is a family made in the apocalypse heavens! LET IT BE!

Shadowhunters
Time: 9 Pm Tuesday
Channel: Free Form
Episode: Major Arcana

Thoughts: I don’t have much to say about this show this week. I just wanted to ask a few of you who are fans, did Clary treat Simon this bad in the books? She has basically turned her back on him. He is turning into a vampire and Clary can’t seem to even pick up the phone. If I recall correctly, in the books she was a little more aware of what her best friend was going through. So why does the show have to be so dramatic about it and make Clary look like the worst friend in the world?

Also, OMG! Alec and Magnus! Love!

 

The 100
Time: Thursday 9PM
Channel: The CW
Episode: Bitter Harvest

Thoughts: Okay, so this show is starting to tick me off. Not to the point where I want to stop watching, but to the point where I want to jump into the television and rip throats out. First you have the sky people at Arkadia, fighting among themselves. They finally reached some kind of agreement with the grounders and stupid Marcus decides that there just has to be an election to make things fair. Big mistake sir!

Now we have this douche nozzle Pike ruining everything the first 100 fought so hard to achieve. Clarke is sitting around with Lexa trying to keep her from killing the sky people, probably setting the site for Lexa to get herself killed. You know how the Grounders have survived? They kill their enemies. You know who their enemies are? The people of Arkadia. Okay, not all of them, but can we please kill Pike already?

Then, we have Jaha with his city of lights BS. I feel like this little happy pill he is handing out is some kind of packet of nano bots. Come on, we all know what happens when you start injecting people with nano bots…the bots take over and all of humanity is lost. But Jaha is too stupid to see what is going on right before his eyes.

So, in conclusion, let Lexa take out Pike and any of his followers except for Bellamy. Which, side note, I am so disappointed in Bellamy. I am totally still shipping Clarke and Bellamy. They should have been a couple a long time ago and wish they would see that already. Sure, Clarke has had her romp in the sheets with chicks, but she was meant for Bellamy! Don’t tell me any different.

Sorry, got off track. Like I was saying, let Lexa in to kill Pike and his followers, give the leadership of Arkadia back to Kane or Abby. Get Lexa back on board with killing her enemies before she becomes too much of a pansy to keep things together. Then find some way to wipe out Jaha’s brain washing computer program. I just can’t take this anymore with Clarke fighting for her people and her people fighting against everything she is doing to save them. Also, we really need to get Pike out of the way before Jaha brings down his hell storm.

What Are You Watching?

One thing I said I was going to do was talking about this year was some of the shows I am watching at the moment. Well…I have been watching a few shows. So let’s dive into a quick chat about what I am watching!

New Shows

Shadowhunters:

I wanted to talk about this show first because I was so exited for this one. I read the Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare. I saw the City of Bones movie. I love the whole Shadowhunters world. And then this show came out…I have basically hated every minute of the three episodes I pushed myself through.

Let me tell you, the acting in this show is so horrible. It just feels low budget and half thought out. The dialogue is boring, and it’s not nearly as magical as the books or the movie. I am terribly upset by this. Honestly, I feel like most of the blame goes to the girl cast as Clary, Katherine McNamara. Everything I have seen her acting in has been horrible. In everything I remember her in she has been this spoiled brat that gets upset when she doesn’t get her way. Sadly, she has brought this into Shadowhunters and Clary. I loved Clary in the books and the movie. I do not love the Clary of the TV show.

I will not continue watching this show. Not only because of the horrible acting and poorly written screenplay, but also, I feel like they just changed too much from the books. It just doesn’t feel like the same story and it’s no longer a story I am interested in.

Shannara Chronicles:

Another TV show based on a novel series. Unlike Shadowhunters, I absolutely love this show. It is so amazing! I have heard bad things about the book series, but watching the show makes me want to read the books. Although, I could be disappointed in one or the other after reading the book.

The acting is on point with this show, which honestly surprised me. I don’t know why, because Teen Wolf is an MTV original show and I love it. I just thought with this show being a high fantasy kind of show, that the budget wouldn’t cover the effects it would need to make the show amazing. I was so wrong!

I love Austin Butler, who plays Wil, one of the main characters. He is seriously gorgeous…the lips… Anyways. He is an amazing actor and I loved him in Switched at Birth. He is much better at playing a half elf, half human though.

The leading women of the show, Poppy Drayton (plays Princess Amberle), and Ivana Baquero (plays Eretria) are also amazing actors. I don’t recall any thing else that have played in, but their acting on this show makes me want to see more from them.

Seriously if you have not checked out this show, please take a couple of hours and watch the first two shows. I don’t think you need the first two to be hooked, but you know, just in case you have your doubts.

Lucifer:

This is another show I had my doubts about and I have only seen one episode. Not because I didn’t like the first, I just haven’t had time to watch the second episode. The first episode was very intriguing and I really enjoyed it. It’s a nice twist on the devil himself and what he might be like in real life.

But you see in the first episode, that him leaving hell to mingle among the humans is starting to change him. Then again, it seems like he was forced to be the king of hell, and it doesn’t really suit him. I am looking forward to seeing more of this show and I really hope the future episodes follow the first and keep me interested. There is so much they could do with the story line.

Returning Shows

Teen Wolf:

 

What really needs to be said about this show? It’s amazing, I love it, and this season has been incredible so far. I thought I would start getting bored at this point, but the show just keeps me on the edge of my seat!

The 100:

This show is in it’s third season and it just keeps getting better and better. Who hasn’t thought about what the world will be like when radiation forces us to escape into space and limited air supply sends us crashing back to the home once deemed unfit for human life?

Also, this was based on a book. I’m afraid to read the book. I’m thinking I will just wait until the show is cancelled (hopefully after several more successful seasons) before I even try reading the books.

There are many more shows that I watch…trust me. There are a ton. But, I have weeks to cover them. I want to start doing a recap/discussion on each episode. Short discussions for episodes I enjoyed with one or two comments, and more in depth discussion for episodes that leave my jaw in the floor.

I will also add times and days that these shows air. Call me lazy this week…I’m trying to get my stuff together to make my post better. Just hang in there with me while I figure it all out.

Tell me, what shows are you watching??
